I reset the gain to 2 after it initializes. Works well.

We tow our 4,200# Jeep Rubicon behind our FR3 30DS. I'm always looking at the rear camera to verify it's still attached.

We found the "Ready Brake" system at the annual Quartzsite show and like it - seems to do the job: NSA RV Products - Ready Brake and Ready Brute Home A cable is attached to the Jeep's brake and connects to the Ready Brake with a detachable wire. There's an indicator light that is run up to the driver area that shows when the brake is activated. When you step on the RV brakes the force of you vehicle pushes towards the RV and then the Ready Brake pulls the wire to and applies the brake on the towed vehicle.

We started with a Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar, but converted over to a 10,000# BlueOx towbar found in a garage sale for just $25! I prefer the BlueOx for disconnecting as the Roadmaster Falcon 2 always seemed to bind.

We pull a 2010 jk 2door 2.5inch lift with 33 inch tires and pulled back seat out but replaced with cooler full of beer couple chairs and full of fuel scales 4200lbs. All together with mh the cw is 17,480lbs. We use the elite ready brute tow bar with surge brake ( love that thing ) and blue ox base plate. We are starting to average 10mpg, the v-10 with the 6 speed trans is really stating to work for us

Nice Rig.

We couldn't agree more. We tow my 2013 Rubicon with a 2.5" RC lift with 33's. Tracks so well behind the Coach.

We're heading to the OBX in September. Looking forward in running the beach with the wild horses

Towing a Jeep Wrangler Xlimited
 
Do you leave they ignition keys on "run"? I test towed my jeep last night and followed the owners manual but there was mention of the keys. I did leave the keys in the run position when I towed it. Thanks
